Whenever my friend says goodnight to me on Skype he sends me this gif
and I wanted to send it to him tonight so I went to Google “black man turning off lamp” but Google autofill changed it to “black man turning into jet” and I got this
Long story short it’s 1am and I’ve been laughing at this for approximately 20 years
Here is the thing about making anything for public consumption: Some people will like it, some people will dislike it, and some people will be so so confusingly furious at you for even existing.
The first category is the people you should be focusing on and making things for.
It doesn’t get much better than a smiling elephant swimming underwater. Photographer Claudia Legge captured these shots of a lifetime while on a trip to India. If you’re in London, you can see these wonderful prints in person at Sheridan & Co.

Art Student Destroys Her Painting After a Critique
But like… if you can’t take criticism (constructive or not), then you’re in the wrong field…. Trying something new and having it be unsuccessful is completely normal. And it totally sucks when that happens after you’ve spent days trying to get it the way you want it. But it’s not okay to throw a fit in the middle of class because no one is willing to just be a yes man.

Iambic pentameter is a form of poetic verse most famously used by Shakespeare and his contemporaries. It represents a ten-syllable line made up of alternately unstressed and stressed syllables. Each pair of syllables makes up one iamb, or “foot”. When the meter is reversed and the stressed syllable leads, it’s called a trochee.
Shakespeare has been a huge force in my life for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always been fascinated by his use and subversion of verse to indicate his characters’ emotions.
This is my very own “iambic foot” and “trochaic foot”. These hatch-marks are how you can mark down where the stress lies in a line of verse.

The English nerd in me is so very tickled by this.
don’t delete artist comments, artist credits, blog sources, or save and repost images to your own blog, etc etc etc. just don’t, man.
I’m really tired of seeing my own work and ESPECIALLY the work of my friends stripped of credit. people are posting free content online for you to look at and enjoy, and if the thing they had to say about it or a link to them is too ugly for your dumb blog, don’t reblog it. I know this is the wild wild west of the internet, but try to respect creators.
edit: I guess somebody thought the wet stinky garbage bag was an implication that I will murder you if you delete credit? the implication is that you are a wet stinky garbage bag. (full of non-murdered garbage)
Credit artists! Leave artist commentary if you reblog! Very simple to remember, everyone!
